Smoked Duck Breast with Honey
Moving on to the what truly makes the restaurant stand out from the rest, the food. The menu consists of a combination of well-loved classics and modern creations that will leave taste buds wanting more. For instance, a simple dish such as the beancurd sheet with shrimp has been elevated with the addition of black truffle, the crispy thin beancurd skin is fried to perfection and has an amazing crunch to it. Another must-have is the succulent smoked duck breast with honey, the duck has just the right amount of fat, is soft and tender and paired with the sweetness of the honey, perfectly complementing the saltiness of the meat.
Braised Fried Rice with Chicken and Black Mushroom
For those looking for something slightly heavier, the braised fried rice with chicken and black mushroom is great. Yet another very typical Cantonese dish but the item that truly stands out is the rice, it is unbelievably fragrant and when mixed with the sauce the texture is at every bite is astonishing. A signature and must-order is the crispy salted chicken, it is surprising light, very tender and the wafer-like skin is incredibly crisp.
